,3lnbtana Ciazette CETERA Monday, October 28, 2002 - Page 9 Vilified for topless photos, beauty queen to compete internationally By The Associated Press LUMBERTON, N.C. — Rebekah Revels, the North Carolina beauty queen who resigned amid a topless photo scandal, has been selected to represent the United States in the Miss World pageant. "I am grateful for the opportunity to represent my state and my country in Miss World — the most glamorous and prestigious pageant in the world," Revels said over the weekend. Revels, 24, won the Miss North Carolina title in June but REVELS resigned after the Miss America pageant received an e-mail indicating there were nude photos of her. Revels told pageant officials that the e-mail came from a former boyfriend. After Revels resigned, she sought to reclaim her crown after the Miss North Carolina Organization had signed a contract with the first runner-up. Revels lost her court battle and was unable to compete in the Miss America pageant. Her selection by the Miss World pageant will allow her to compete Dec. 7 in Nigeria against 119 women from around die world. "We are delighted to have selected Rebekah as the first winner under our new franchise," said Iean : Renard, managing director of Miss World Holdings Inc., which recently won the license in the United States for the Miss World pageant. LONDON — More than half of Britons think Prince Charles should be allowed to live with longtime companion Camilla Parker Bowles when he is king — but nearly an equal number do not want her to become queen, according to a new poll. Fifty-seven percent of respondents said they would find it acceptable for Charles to live with Parker Bowles, without marrying her, when he is king, while 32 percent said it would be unacceptable. Forty-two percent thought the pair should marry, while 36 percent were opposed and 32 percent did not express an opinion. Just over half of respondents — 52 percent — thought Parker Bowles should not be queen, as she would if she were married to Charles and he became king. Some Britons oppose the relationship because the prince's popular ex- wife Princess Diana blamed Parker Bowles for the breakup of her marriage. But polls show increasing public acceptance of the relationship between Charles, the eldest son of Queen Elizabeth II, and the divorced Parker Bowles. Charles has said he has no plans to. remarry. The poll, conducted by NOP Research Group, involved 996 people aged 15 and over in September. The margin of error was plus or minus three percentage points. REYKJAVIK, Iceland —The mother of pop singer Bjork says she is frail but determined to continue her hunger strike against a plan to develop the Icelandic highlands. Hildur Runa Hauksdottir stopped eating Oct. 7 to try to persuade Pittsburgh-based Alcoa Inc. to pull out of the plan to build an aluminum smelter and hydroelectric plant in the wilderness area. Environmentalists say the project will ruin the area above Vatnajokull, Europe's largest gtacier, in east Iceland. Hauksdottir, 56, said Sunday she had lost more than 14 pounds, had difficulty remembering certain words and felt very tired. "I'm not sure I could go on for another 40 days," Hauksdottir said. "But it is incredible how much support I am getting and this helps a great deal." Alcoa and the Icelandic government have already started work building access roads and tunnels for the project above the Vatnajokull glacier. Hauksdottir said Bjork's fame had helped gain publicity for the cause. Dear Abby By Abigail Van Buren DEAR ABBY: Fire Prevention Month has nearly ended, but may I still enlist your help? Firefighters across the country are so eager to respond to emergency calls, they frequently fail to buckle their own seat belts. Last year, 13 firefighters died from injuries that could have been prevented simply by buckling theirseatbelts. While many fire departments have rules that are strictly enforced, the majority do not enforce the seat belt rule until someone gets hurt or killed. Six firefighters this year have died from rollovers or being thrown from fire and personal vehicles while responding to a fire. Excuses from firefighters range from, "We need to put on our gear," to "Seat belts don't fit over the gear." It is the responsibility of each individual to buckle his or her seat belt. I'd like to ask each spouse, parent, child, family member or friend of a firefighter to please remind him or her to buckle up whether riding in a fire truck or ambulance. Listen up, firefighters: Seatbelts Are For Everyone ... even firefighters! Not buckling up is just plain stupid. — JANET WILMOTH, EDITOR, "FIRE CHIEF" DEAR JANET: I'm pleased to publicize your appeal. It would be a tragedy if a firefighter is killed before he or she can even respond to the emergency. Certainly "buckling up" is not too much to ask from our heroes. Their jobs are risky enough as it is. DEAR ABBY: I am fond of my son- in-law, "Kirk." He is a fine person. However, Kirk is overweight and has high cholesterol, and my daughter, "Gloria," told me she finds Kirk's weight a "turnoff." While they were visiting me last weekend, Gloria went to the cupboard where I keep candy and nuts for my bridge group. She filled a plate with divinity, chocolate kisses, nuts, etc. and set it on the table right in front of Kirk. We had just returned from a champagne brunch. I later told Gloria I thought it was wrong of her to serve candy to Kirk knowing he wouldn't be able to resist. She replied, "Everyone is responsible for himself." What is your take on this situation? — CONCERNED M-I-L IN SAN DIEGO DEAR CONCERNED: What your daughter is doing to her husband is deliberate sabotage. She's feeding his weakness. For whatever reasons, she isn't encouraging a healthy, fit spouse. People who love each other want what's best for them and offer support. Shame on Gloria. DEAR ABBY: I am an 18-year-old guy who's been dating my 13-year- old girlfriend for the past six months. Her mom knows we go out, but she doesn't know I'm 18. She thinks I just turned 17. Abby, I really love this girl. We've made a commitment to get married when she turns 18, which is when she graduates from high school. In the meantime, what should I do about lying to her mom about my age? — TOTALLY IN LOVE DEAR TOTALLY IN LOVE: Level with her mother. If you are caught in this lie, the girl's parents will rightfully wonder what else you and their daughter have been lying about. Furthermore, without her parents' blessing, in some states — if this should "go too far" — you may find yourself in legal trouble because you are considered an adult and she is a minor. Please give this some serious thought and don't delay. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.
